Just finished pre-wiring my new house for a Lync 6 HTD system, can't wait to get it installed. There seems to be nothing but positives about HTD on this forum, always great to read continued great reviews!
I'm pretty much in the same boat, starting new construction and doing a very similar set up. Not sure if you have checked out Home Theater Direct's Lync whole home audio systems. That's one of the goodies I'm heavily leaning towards as a budget friendly whole home audio solution. Seems to get decent reviews. I am very interested to hear what others suggest on this thread!
Good luck with the new house!
